Lockheed Martin will provide the first phase of an integrated technology network to increase the Iraqi Air Force’s situational awareness in military and civilian airspace.

Under the $28.1m contract with the US Air Force, Lockheed will deliver a networked communications infrastructure to the Iraq air command and control system.

The communications infrastructure will include a sector operation centre (SOC) and training suite, a ground-to-air transmitter and receiver site and an AN/TPS-77 long-range air surveillance radar system.

Lockheed Martin’s tactical systems business vice president and general manager Rick Udicious said that this project enhances the Iraqi Air Force’s capability by significantly improving situational awareness with modern command and control capabilities that are interoperable with other coalition assets.

The first phase is expected to be complete within two years and three months.
